Authorities arrested a 58-year-old West Virginia fugitive on a sailboat Friday

in Clay County on multiple sexual assault and incest charges, according to law enforcement officials in two states.

Hubert Woodruff “Woodie” Diamond of Shepherdstown, W.Va., was tracked to the boat anchored off Spring Park at the end of Walnut Street in Green Cove Springs, according to the Clay County Sheriff’s Office.

Jefferson County, W.Va., Sheriff Pete Dougherty said the U.S. Marshals Service got the tip, and his office confirmed he was wanted on a Feb. 4 warrant.

“He was scheduled to appear for trial and absconded prior to his trial date, so we also had a felony fleeing capias on him as well,” Dougherty said. “They had a tip where he was, and he was in a boat and he would come in on a dingy, then get supplies and go back out to his boat.”


Arrested on Sailboat


Diamond was initially indicted in mid-January 2018 by the Jefferson County grand jury on two counts of first-degree sexual assault, four counts of incest and four more of sexual abuse by a parent/guardian or custodian, according to Herald-Mail Media. Then three weeks ago the current grand jury indicted Diamond for failure to appear, according to the Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.

Dougherty said the charges stem from incidents that date back as far as 2009 in Jefferson County, and Diamond will be extradited back home as soon as possible.

“We will definitely be down to give him a nice ride back to face trial,” the sheriff said.
